As a university consortium, Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) creates and promotes collaborative partnerships among academia, government (with a focus on Oak Ridge National Laboratory), and industry to strengthen our nation’s scientific research and education enterprise. Also as nonprofit corporation and federal contractor, we provide responsive, innovative solutions to address national needs in the areas of worker/public health and environmental stewardship, emergency response, and scientific research and education. Applying these capabilities, we manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
In addition, as a strategic partner with UT-Battelle, the managing contractor for ORNL, we work with the University of Tennessee and Battelle to help strengthen the science and technology programs at ORNL. Our purpose is to facilitate mutually beneficial university partnerships that will enhance collaborative research and expand faculty and student participation at the lab.
